Rubbermaid Lunchblox Giveaway

I take my lunch to work every day so when I was contacted by Rubbermaid to try out their new lunchbloxes I was all for it. I'm always looking for ways to make lunchtime more interesting, easier to pack, and healthier. The magic of these lunch boxes really became apparent when I started using them.  

So let's see how good they are:

1) They are very compact because they are rectangular blocks and all the pieces snap together.  Just picture Rubbermaid and Lego getting together and having a baby.  Not only do you have lots of compartments for different parts of your lunch, but they all snap together like a set of lunchtime Lego blocks.

2) They have a specially made cooler block that snaps onto the lunch containers.  Our schools are not air conditioned so they are often very hot in June and September and food can spoil quickly in those conditions.  The cooler pack is a brilliant idea!

3)  There are two sizes of containers.  One is designed for sandwiches and the other for salads - perfect for a little lunchtime variety.

4)  I love the slew of tiny containers that come with each kit so you can bring salad dressing or pieces of cheese or yogurt for lunch as well.  I recently found out that the packaging for individual containers of yogurt are not recyclable in our area.  I have been making an effort to decant yogurt from a big container into a little one so my lunches are more environmentally-friendly and these containers are perfect for this.

5.  I love that there are measurement guides on the containers which help with portion control.  

6.  I love the colours - I'm a blue and green girl so these are a natural choice.

Salad Lunchblox kit

Not only was I given some Rubbermaid Lunchbloxes to try, but I have some to give away as well.  One lucky person will win the following:
  • two Rubbermaid Lunchblox salad kits
  • two Rubbermaid Lunchblox sandwich kits
That's a total of about a $50 value and years worth of yummy lunch toting.  
Here are the giveaway details:
  • The prize is only eligible if you live in Canada   
  • To enter just leave a comment below (and please leave an email address so I can contact you if your name is drawn).  
  • The contest ends on Tuesday, September 25th at 9:00 pm.
I can't leave you without sharing my one and only lunch packing tip.

When you make muffins or cupcakes to pack with your lunch the icing can get all over everything.  So instead of icing the top, you should split the cupcake or muffin in half and put the icing in the middle like a sandwich filling.  Brilliant, eh?  

Oh, and if these carrot cupcakes have you drooling, you can find the recipe here.  

Do you have any great lunch packing tips?

    Love your tip on packing for lunches too. On the rarest of the rare occasions when we actually got a pop in our lunch (I'm talking once a year here) mom would wrap it up in tinfoil---stayed cool till lunch! :)

  7. Hello, Grace. I would love to win the lunch and salad kits as they would be quite useful in my household. I love your tip about the icing; I just shared it with another member of my household. Thank you for the opportunity to win these wonderful prizes. Have a great day, Grace.

  8. I know I can't win, but I did want to share a tip. I use a sandwich press to keep the contents from shifting and becoming messy. My sandwich press is heart-shaped! The girls have always loved it.

    Another tip is to keep their gogurt yogurt in the freezer. It is thawed by lunch, and it helps keep the rest of their lunch cool, too!

  9. I am Canadian and a contest for us - yyiippeee!!!! I would love to win since I take my lunch everyday.
